Christmas Glows with LOve!!!

Off to Christmas eve service!!! The Pastor had a lady bring in a baby sheep and he had all the kids in the service come up to the stage and he read the children's story The Crippled Lamb, it was such a sweet story and all those kids were just in awe of this little baby lamb, and they were all so good while he read the story!!!!The story is about this little lamb who thought he had No purpose with his life and he discovers he has a very important reason to be around and that is to keep Baby Jesus warm the night he is born!!!!The Pastor then read the Christmas story from the book of Luke!!! I love going to Christmas eve service and it was special because Will was off and was able to attend with us!!! We have gone to Midnight Mass with him before as well.
Our Church had Snow brought in!!!!!
Will cooked dinner for me!!!! Yeah!!! Although I really didn't start feeling sick until I went to bed!!!

In spite of feeling so sick, I took some tylenol and did what needed to be done to make Christmas Day Special; one that I look forward to and enjoy so much. I sadly missed out on Christmas dinner at our daughter's house with her in-laws, I was so looking forward to spending the day with all of them. This is the first time I have ever been sick on Christmas Day and had to miss out on anything!!!!

Dear Jamie,
So sorry you were ill. May you mend quickly and have a Happy New Year. Cute post.

I am up and saw your post. I've gotta get to sleep...busy day Tuesday!

It's a Wonderful Life is one of my favs as well. We watched it along with Little Women, ELF (twice), Miracle on 34th Street, Santa Claus 1,2 and 3. Another Finnish movie about Santa Claus, but at the moment I forget the name of it!

We were snowed in Christmas Eve, Christmas day and the day after. Finally got to do a little after Christmas Sales. This was sooo much fun. I'm feeling alittle quizzy...ouch.

Jamie, may you have a wonderful New Year.

I am so sorry that you have been so sick. I had the same thing the week of finals. Ugh. It is amazing how we women carry on.

The precious photo of your grandbaby clasping her hands with a big O on her mouth is just a treasure.

I hate that you were sick, but it looks like you managed to make it a great day for everyone! I think someone is going to have to build on to accommodate all Camdyn's new toys!!! :)

I also think it's neat that your church brought in snow! It's cold here, but we're not going to have snow....

I hate that one person can make a big family have problems! It has happened in our family, but we finally managed to pull ourselves back together. I hope that happens for you!

zandra said...

Hope you're feeling better! I'm back on your list? Don't know why that happens? It has happened to me, too??? Love the pancake shapes. You'll have to give me the recipe for that adorable snowman cheese ball, LOVE it! Looks like happiness was had by all. Have a magical New Year!
Hugz, Z

Oliva said...

So much fun!!! Love all the pics and your grandbaby so adorable!!! My most favorite Christmas movies are Miracle on 34th Street & It's A Wonderful Life!!
Hope you're feeling better!

Audra said...

May you be up and around in no time feeling better than ever! Always a downer getting sick around the holidays, takes so much away.

Love the fact you watch holiday movies, we do as well. While browsing the video store for titles to watch I met another lady who has instilled this tradition in her family!

Your little princess is just darling, how wonderful to have a little one to bring out the joy of the season.

Happy New Year!

Audra said...

PS: Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am fairly new to blogging, since July and I have not been to one of the luncheons, so you have not met me...Yet! Look forward to the next luncheon and meeting fellow bloggers in the area. I live in Glendale but work in Chandler, (long drive!)

Keep me posted would love to have a meet up with eveyone! Happy New Year!

So happy you guys had such a great x-mas!! I love that little roller coaster thing that you got Camdyn....soooo FUN!!! Sorry to hear you were sick, the kids over here have been battling some kind of cold for about a week. No fun:( Happy New Year!!!

The Rustic Victorian said...

I am glad you are feeling better. I know several people who had the crud on Christmas. By the wonderful photos it looks like a great family time. Your littlest Princess had fun for sure.. and your handsome man had just as much fun! I wish you all the blessings you can stand in 2010.

Jamie, I love all of your pictures, what a wonderful Christmas with your family. Camdyn is such a doll and she looks so excited. I am so sorry to hear you were sick. I made it through Christmas, but Sat. morning woke up with a horrible cold and still all stuffed up. I hope this goes away soon. I have so enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you this past year and hope you have a Blessed and Happy New Year. Hugs, Marty

Merry Christmas! I am so sorry you were sick. KJ got sick the night of Christmas day too! Poor girl threw up at the movie. A first for her too! Have I told you I am loving your hair. It looks so cute all the time. Is it longer/straighter or what? Whatever it is I'm loving it. Do you know we have had the movie "It's a Wonderful life" for six years now and I have never watched it. It just gets so busy around this time of year. It is Cody's fav. as well. I must see it. I am glad you had a magical Christmas! It looks like Santa took care of all of you pretty good! YOu must of been good! Miss C face running into your house and seeing all her gifts is priceless. She is such a cute girl! Looks like everything you got her was a hit. I'm glad you are feeling better and got to enjoy your sweet family on Christmas. Have fun on New Years!

Bethanie said...

HI, I love all the pics. Camdyn is so sweet! She looks so cute when she ran in the house to see all her presents. I love the picture of grand-dude laying on his belly playing with her. She is so loved!!! I do agree with the lady that said you are going to have to build on a play room for her with all those new toys she got. :-) haha
I hope you are feeling better and have a great new Years eve.
Love you and talk to you soon, Bethanie
